financing and planning the second phase. alice griffith, this is a project that received a cni -- comprehensive neighborhood initiative to grant. and this grant was $30 million from hud to do basically hope sf. and that really was a jump start for that particular development. and what is coming to the commission is what will be the first phase of the alice griffith reid bill and that hopefully will be in the nearest future which will be 5800 senior. so, there is an off-site component, strictly voluntary, which will create independent senior housing at 5800, which is behind the condos and the whole foods. and hopefully a state-of-the-art senior center named obviously for dr. george davis. so, that will be the first phase of the alice griffin reid bill and we're working with the developer and the developer's architect of the plan, the actual alice griffith site itself. and then for sunnydale and potrero, they both have applicationses for the cni planning grant right now which hopefully if they're awarded that planning grant from hud will be a precursor for additional implementati

off-site. people were relocated off-site, its was voluntary. we have not done any relocation at alice yet. and, again, we will not have to do as much relocation at alice if there are additional vacant parcels that the city acquired and the developer acquired from the state park that are adjacent to alice griffith. so, that's where the first buildings will go. and as we build those buildings and move the residents from their existing units, we'll demolish those units. we are again trying to mime eyes the off sit relocation. >> it's good to know that. >> we can do that where we have room. we can't always do that, but hunters view and alice griffith give us the opportunity to do so. and, you know, obviously the dense ithv of potrero as well as sunnydale is lower so we have the opportunity to keep most of the residents on-site as we build. * density the big question is the source of the funding. we will move as fast as we have funds to build. and, you know, so, that's always the biggest issue. but for now alice and hunters view are moving along. >> and then i guess the current location, i

look at perhaps the most beautiful thing to come out of this storm. her name is alice rosenbaum. she is the tiny one in her father's arms. the fact that she is in fact safely home tonight, especially after what she went through, it would make anyone smile. born in a hospital where they lost power and the backup generators failed. even here, even now, it's almost enough to redeem everything else you're going to see tonight. almost. starting with jason carroll. >> reporter: a disaster still ongoing. the images overwhelming. >> this was a devastating storm. >> a tanker on shore. >> it is beyond anything i thought i'd ever see. >> reporter: miles of shoreline washed away. home after oceanfront home surrounded by water, yet consumed by fire. in west virginia and across the appalachians, ice and snow. all of it, all of this, the legacy of sandy, a superstorm that's living up to the name as bad as the billing, as terrible as the forecast. >> just these massive -- look at these waves coming through behind me. >> new jersey caught some of the first of it, and much of the worst. >> we're at a

done in rebuilding distressed public housing. we're fortunate at hunters view and at alice griffith that we have adjacent parcels and lower density so we can have on-site relocation. so we're not going to lose people from that elocation process, giving them vouchers and moving them anywhere in either the city or across the bay as the [ka-euts/] case the might be. we should be able to contain all the residents in housing and not leaving the site for temporary relocation as the case may be. the mayor's office supports the amended legislation and look forward seeing you at the opening of hadn'ters view. in the very near future. new families will be moving in prior to thanksgiving, but not quite sure when we'll have the opening event, but it's very different than what the rest of the country is doing. san francisco should be proud had a we're doing that in the manner and we hope to be continuing this work at alice grifth, for which we got a choice neighborhood grant. we look forward to working hopefully at potrero. >> thank you sahara showered. >> emily rogers from the planning departme

world. and sam stein political editor and white house correspondent. thank you for being here. >> alice, 7.8 is a lot better than 8.1 but it's obviously not as low as we would like. the progress has been somewhat slow. so when you look at the numbers, you look at the trajectory of the economy over the year, how do you think a voter should understand the economy when they're judging president obama and mitt romney. >> the economy is getting better, more jobs are being created. we aren't where we would like to be. 7.8 is still quite a high unemployment rate. we would like it to be 5 or 4. there was a couple of months in the 1990s when it got under 4. that would be terrific. but we're not there. we dug ourselves a huge hole after the financial crash of 2008. and we had this great recession which took the economy down fast and at the time that obama took over, the economy was in freefall. and since then, it's gotten better. at first, it got worse at a slower rate. that's not a great slogan. but for the last 2 1/2 years, it has gotten steadily better in the sense that jobs have grown every y
